Meet the Profession Dinner 2016

Click here for presenter Peter Agardy’s paper, “Reconciling Christian Principles with the Practice of the Law”

Thank you to all the students and members of the profession that attended our Meet the Profession Dinner on 7 September 2016.

We had the privilege of honouring one of the VCLS’ longstanding supporters and past VCLS president Ross Gordon for his many years of service as he transitions into retirement.


VCLS President Ms Derrick Toh presents Mr Gordon with an honorary lifetime membership.

We were also inspired by the thoughtful and insightful presentation by barrister and author, Mr Peter Agardy, on reconciling Christian principles with the practice of law. Peter has graciously permitted us to upload a copy of his paper.

Thanks also to those who generously donated door prizes for the students, in particular Lewis Holdway Lawyers and barrister Ray Ternes who offered an internship and a shadowing opportunity, respectively.

We hope that everyone was able to make new connections and strengthen existing contacts and that we continue to be salt and light within the legal community.

For the students, if you would like to be involved with the VCLS, please get in touch.

If you are not yet on our mailing list and would also like to join as a member for FY2016/2017 please contact Amy at
